Bach composed BWV 135 as the fourth cantata in the second annual cycle of Leipzig cantatas. The hymn "Ach Herr, mich armen Sunder" was written in the 16th century to the tune of "Herzlich tut mich verlangen". The unidentified Leipzig librettist of the 2nd cycle of chorale cantatas made free use of this hymn as the basis of an exemplary cantata text.Score available separately - see item CA.3113500.
